They Are the Reason for Conflict, When the Truth Through Love Hurts
Richard Carl Silk, Editor for the Advocate" (based on https://biblehub.com/john/14-26.htm, John 14:26), made an interesting observation regarding LOVE - UNITY and how the absence is DUALITY and CONFLICT.
ONLY LOVE creates Unity, and as "God IS Love" (1 John 4:8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God IS love) we ALL come FROM God (aka 1❤️0, hence the topic: Boolean Monotheism, the Logical Tree from the Seed of the Teaching (λόγος, LOGOS) of Jesus, namely, Matthew 5:44 “…Love thine enemies….”)
ALL conflict (A vs. B) reflects duality.
Those who intentionally reject God reflect duality (and in a BIG way!)
All sin reflects duality (A apart from the Unity of the Love of God the Father.)
Any further questions?"
Thank you for the great insight and truth here Richard. I'd love to again reference your work in a Blog I'm completing regarding spiritual warfare.
I'd add that in this Age of Grace we're currently living, we're under this command of Love as Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 13 KJV - we could possess all gifts, but without Love (Agape Godly - self-sacrificing, not a feeling but self-sacrifice supreme love) it means nothing! Furthermore, we know that true love demands perfect truth and justice. The duality- conflict will always arise when The Truth (Jesus Christ) stands against The Father of Lies (Satan). For this reason, Jesus said, “I came not to bring peace, but a sword.” Matthew 10:34KJV because Satan is the prince and god of this world. Luke 11:21 and 2 Corinthians 4:4 KJV.
Therefore, conflict is inevitable but it not we the children of light who brings duality and conflict but rather the duality - absence of love brings the conflict to us from the lost who belong to their father, the father of lies, Satan. John 8:42-47 KJV.
Note Paul wrote: “Am I to be your enemy because I tell you the truth? Galatians 4:16 KJV.
